Wow! Wow! Wow! Never been anywhere like North Star Club, What an Unbelievable place to stay! Your literally in the middle of the secluded woodland 500 acres of it to be precise! In perfect Yorkshire style you are surrounded by the nature of the forest and I have to mention that throughout our stay we spotted so many wonderful animals including a deer, pheasants, and a beautiful white owl. Just amazing!

Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely lady who kindly showed us to our suite, she gave us all the information we needed and then left us to relax and unwind.
The Suite was so warm and homely and we couldn’t quite believe how big it was. The bathroom was very Spa like, very spacious, with a huge bath and walk in shower. The style of the whole club flowed throughout, from the entrance to walking to your suite, to entering your suite. A feel of the outside came inside with such cosy and rustic decor.
After settling in our new ‘home’ for the next couple of nights we put our wellies on and headed straight for the woods. There is an on-site walk around the huge forest which was suitable for the children and they couldn’t wait to jump in all the puddles, splat in all the mud and see what animal they could spot next!
The walk took about 90 minutes however our children both under 4 managed to walk all the way around….. they were that tired they were both fast asleep before 7pm.
I have mentioned how cosy the inside of the suite is but the outside is just as amazing, With your own private decking area with a large table, bench and gas bbq you can spend morning, noon, or night cooking up a treat onlooking the woods seeing which animal you could hear or spot next. You are even able to have a bbq pack delivered if arranged in advance!
North Star Club is situated between York & Hull and is within a short distance to many top attractions, York is about a 40 minute Drive and is definitely worth a trip. If you fancy a trip to the seaside then Scarborough is just over an hours drive away.
There is a communal area where you can have a sit around under the canopy and light a fire, we didn’t feel the need to do this but if you visit with a large group it would be lovely having a good old chin wag around the fire with the fairy lights on around the canopy. Or if visiting with young children like us it’s a perfect to play a game of stepping stones jumping across the tree stumps without falling off!
Straight opposite is the The Woodshed, inside you instantly feel cosy as the luxury rustic woodland decor hits you as soon as you open the door. It’s filled with big throws (They are Faux for anybody concerned) You can light the fire play games, enjoy a drink and a brownie. Or simply just sit and relax.
I have to mention that I feel this place is perfect for children too, everything was suited for our children. The grounds were flat so they were able to walk everywhere, the suite was all on one level so they could run around and we always knew they were somewhere. Yes there are candles around but we chose not to use them. There are lights so you can still see in the dark. The boys thought it was a fab adventure, they didn’t even realise there was no television. There was a den outside the front door they loved playing in and as previously mentioned the nature of the animals just wandering by kept them entertained they couldn’t wait to spot another one. The bunk beds were fab and by having a fridge it meant we could keep drinks and snacks in there.
Overall we had the most pleasant stay, it was so lovely to be able to do whatever you wanted without having to make contact with anybody, there was nobody around, it was peacefully quiet and nice to go somewhere totally different to where we would normally go. There is no entertainment or no Park but that’s what makes this place so special. You have to create your own entertainment and own memories. I love what North Star Club have done here and would love to return. Thank you for inviting us, all images and views are honest.
I loved looking through the comment book I couldn’t see one negative comment!
